Its good to get some positive feedback. I have never kept a car for as long as I have kept my VS, now had it 5yrs. Normally I would change cars at 1st MOT time and believe me I have been looking around for a replacement but just cant find anything better for comfort space and general practicality, hence I cant bring myself to part with it. It also seems that the older it's getting the better it's becoming. Now on 103,000 mls and seems quieter, smoother and MPG regularly moves into the low 50's but general running around is providing mid-high 40's.
I am tempted by the 3ltr grand espace initiale but do I really need a 3ltr?
Blimey, I reckon I'm doing well if it averages 38mpg! I've just bought a Volvo 960 estate to keep the VS company - now we've got a dog I need an estate, given there's so little value in the VS I thought I'd keep it going for another year at least and buy a smoker for the weekends. Havn't had a straight six for years, it's a lovely old thing.
